Three of the most famous actors in television have reportedly sealed their new contracts and will pull in an estimated €745,000 per person, per episode.
Stars of the popular TV show ‘The Big Bang Theory’ have disrupted production recently due to their reported unsatisfactory salaries until the increases were settled bringing filming back on track.
The show is estimated to have approximately 20 million fans. Echoing similar traits of the popular series Friends, Warner Bros has accepted their demands to ensure the show continues in its popularity. Kaley Cuoco plays ‘Penny’, Jim Parsons plays ‘Sheldon’ and Johnny Galecki plays the role of ‘Dr Leonard Hofstadter’. The actors have transformed into worldwide stars following the show´s success.
The new deal will significantly boost their income each earning an extra €522,000 in comparison to previous season´s €223,500 per episode. Accompanying that, more advertising and sponsorships will undoubtedly come to supplement their income. Kaley Cuoco pocketed €8,230,122 according to Forbes last year with her Big Bang salary combining with her film work and Toyota advertisement.
Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, who play Raj and Howard, are still negotiating their contracts but expect to be signed next week.
